Please refer to the link above. We are posting a notice of waiver per the statute (CRS 8-17-101(1) which states that Colorado labor shall be employed to perform at least eighty percent of the work. The City has found there is reasonable evidence to demonstrate insufficient Colorado labor to perform the work of the project and that compliance with article 17, section 1, title 8, C.R.S., as amended, would create an undue burden that would substantially prevent the project from proceeding to completion. Accordingly, the City waives the requirement of section 8-17-101, C.R.S., that the contractor employ at least eighty percent Colorado labor to perform work on the project.
Mitigating the potential spread of COVID-19 to ensure the health and well-being of our staff and community is fundamental to providing service excellence. That is why the City of Boulder has implemented several precautionary social distancing measures. Please note the following important updates:
- The building that houses the Purchasing Division, and all Finance offices (Brenton Building, 1136 Alpine Ave.) will be closed to the public until further notice. However, purchasing staff will be working our regular hours (8:00 am – 5:00 pm) on a remote basis and have full capability to manage the purchase of goods and services for the City. Please contact us via email at [email protected] for matters requiring support.
